Jones took appreciation for the defensive side of the football since he was young. Comes from an athletic family where his mother ran track, father play baseball/football and brother played football.
He displays good ball skills and shows solid pattern recognition and jump routes. Witnessed versus Toledo his ability to mirror shifty quick receivers in their wideout Corey Jones. Plays with confidence and can quarterback the secondary.
Attention to details and aims to understand and identify the other units on defense. High football IQ. Can play inside or out and nickelback. Physical and shows some ability to make plays.
Scrappy and talented enough to be a priority free agent and gain confidence in coaching staffs once camp begins.
